NLMK Stoilensky Launches New Logistics Scheme for Open-Pit Mining

NLMK Group’s Stoilensky Mining and Beneficiation Plant, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor, has introduced a new hauling scheme at its open-pit mine. This large-scale project has enabled shortening the raw material hauling distance to the beneficiation facilities by 5 km, from 13 km to 8 km. In addition, it has opened up the promising northwestern mining direction. Since the launch of the construction works in 2017, 60 infrastructural facilities were built: three railway stations, eight railway junctions, overpasses, power generation facilities, a road, rail tracks, railroad switches, overhead lines, central interlock and communication systems, etc.

By improving the throughput capacity of major railway nodes in the mine, the new logistics scheme will increase ore supplies to the primary crushing facility by 2% to approximately 140,000 tonnes per day.

The total cost of the project exceeded RUB 8 billion.
